Hey Y’all! Coming into FL on Oct. 15th and I need some solid advice since I haven’t been to the parks since 2016 and its seems like EVERYHING has changed. First, some info to help you to help me
- This is a “Girls Trip” with 3 Moms + 3 Daughters (9/10 year olds) = Party of 6
- We are NOT staying on-site, so we cannot take advantage of Early Entry
- Our Park Reservations:
- Saturday, 10/16 at EPCOT (full day)
- Sunday, 10/17 at HS (full day)
- Tuesday, 10/19 at MK (full day)
- Wednesday, 10/20 at HS (half to full day)
- Thursday, 10/21 at AK (half day - afternoon to evening hours)
- Friday, 10/22 at MK + Boo Bash (half day - afternoon to evening then Boo Bash)
Specific questions I have are:
Is it even worth getting to the park early to “rope drop” if we are off-site guests? And if so, at which parks will it be the most beneficial to do so? We want to pretty much ride everything and I am just lost now on how to attack planning to do the most popular attractions without the benefit of rope-dropping or FastPass.
IF Genie+ becomes available the week we are there, would anyone suggest paying for this? I know this is a hot topic and I’m frustrated about the money grab along with many of you but y’all, this trip is our first in 5 years and could be our last for quite some time so I want to ensure that we get to experience everything we possibly can. I just have no idea if this is even something I should try to work into my planning and I’d like your thoughts.
RotR - My daughter and I are HUGE Star Wars fans. Am I going to have issues getting on this experience and it taking up a insanely large amount of time now that we are in standby mode? What time of day do you think would be ideal to try for the shortest wait?
I’m a planner… I have followed detailed touring plans in the past and I really just feel like I’ve had to take everything I know and throw it out the window. I AM looking forward to perhaps a more laid back approach at the parks, I’m not gonna lie, BUT everyone else in my party is looking to me to be the official touring planner and I really feel like I don’t know what the heck I’m doing anymore lol! What advice do you have to give for my trip in terms of how to tour specific parks/attractions. I’ll take anything y’all have for me.
Thanks so kindly!
